“Great stay - amazing staff & great location”
Reviewed 14 May 2010

We stayed at the White House with a group of friends. Throughout our stay, we were impressed by the kindness of the staff who were all extremely friendly and helpful. A big thank you to Cafer, Elif and Emrah and the others. You even receive little surprises and gifts upon arrival and departure. The hotel is brand new and extremely clean. It is centrally located and within walking distance (5 minutes) from the Big Bazaar and the famous Mosques. At night, we could walk to very nice restaurants recommended by the staff. We would definitely recommend the hotel and come back.

Reviewed 13 May 2010

I stayed at the White house may 9th - 12th 2010, at a price of 99 euro per night.

Overall I would reccomend this hotel for the price it represents good value. However a word of caution regarding it's status as no 1 on trip advisor, subjective views and not the best hotel in Istanbul by any means. But for 99e it's central, clean and welcoming.

Pros
high quality service/ staff
location
large room size
special touches - welcome, departure gifts

Cons
hard beds
breakfast in basement
poor quality breakfast
rear rooms overlook dirty buildings
roof not yet open

Newly refurbished with large rooms, friendly and helpful staff with satellite TV this is a good and convenient place to base yourself for seeing Istanbul. Easy walking distance to all the Sultanahmet sites and with a block of good restaurants a minutes walk (up) the street. Recommended.

The location is simply perfect: quiet street but in the very heart of Istanbul.
All the staff is young, very professional and polite.
A special mention to Cafer for his precious suggestions.

The family room we've stayed at was very nice: clean, fresh, elegant, comfortable and spacious. Staff (Elif, Cafer, Omar) is always willing to help and recommend the best solutions, be that a nice restaurant or a perfect way to visit the multiple sightseeing attractions of Istanbul. Location is excellent both quite and at the same time two or four minute walk away from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia and from the many nice cafes and restaurants with a delicious Turkish cuisine.
